VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

There are a number of ways for the community to get involved at the farm check out the list below to be in the know!

Community Volunteer Days

We strive to offer monthly volunteers days throughout the summer.  Our volunteer days are fun and informal, and always end in a potluck!  Tasks vary each month, sometimes there is heavy lifting to do, other times we are caught up and we spend more time exploring the farm and sharing food than working.  There are always tasks and activities to engage all abilities, mobilities, and ages.   Everybody is welcome!  Check out our events calendar or sign up for our newsletter to get information about our next community volunteer day.

 

Weekly farm stands

If you are curious and want to check out the farm stop by our farm stand each Wednesday from 4pm- 7pm.  This is the same time our CSA members pick up their produce!  We usually have extra produce for sale, and you are always welcome to take a self guided tour of the farm at this time.  This is a great time to come out and talk about the weather with your friendly neighborhood farmers and connect with fellow local food enthusiasts.   

Workshare Members

Each year we accept 3-5 work share members.  We trade our work share members a full share and a fall share of our CSA in exchange for a four hour work shift each week.  Fortunately we do not typically have to work from dusk to dawn, so we can only accept applicants that are available during regular weekday hours of 9am-5pm.  Work share members will get hands on experience building soil, shaping beds, planting seeds, transplanting seedlings, managing weeds/ pests, harvesting produce, and will learn proper safety techniques of post harvest vegetable handling.  We operate our farm like a tiny farm rather than a big garden.  We ask that that applicants are invested in learning the efficiencies of small scale farming, are able bodied and have a strong work ethic.
